|Città Alta has been a walled town for 450 years
After a late start following the New Year’s Eve festivities, many families will watch the concert of classical music from La Fenice in Venice on television before enjoying another traditional feast together either at home or in a restaurant.
The year 2011 marks a significant anniversary for Bergamo. It is 450 years since the Venetians began work on the sturdy walls to fortify the city against invaders, effectively creating the Città Alta (upper town) and the Città Bassa (lower town).
Buon Anno e Tanti Auguri per 2011 da Best of Bergamo!
